    This is my build. I have full plans on modding the engine as I am a certified Shelby tech as well as lifting the truck. All of the engine work as been done by myself with little to no research just doing what I do daily to my own rig. Learning the suspension as I go. I will update this build as I mod more.

    Awesome, thanks! Did you bother covering anything up or did you just spray away?

    Okay, cool. My least favorite part of painting is taping things off! It's always windy here, so it's impossible to tape newspaper to my truck! Haha I may tape off the top of the bumper just in case though...

    They're excellent but for a AT they are a little loud. Excellent in the snow.

    Yes I did but had to run a 912 in the side marker. The resistance in the 194 will give you hyper blink. Get a dremel and make the hole a little bigger. The 912 fits in the 194 socket.
